Color Workshop at the Creative Art Connection, presented by Donna McGee

Donna McGee will present a 2-day painting workshop for the Creative Art Connection
April 7 & 8, 2016
at the Bossier Public Works Building, 3223 Old Shed Road, Bossier City, Louisiana.
 9:00am - 4:00pm
$125.00 for non-members; $100.00 for members.
This workshop focuses on the use of the six-primary system for consistent color mixing and value transitions. Workshop participants will paint with cool and warm primary colors and learn how neural can be used to easily alter intensity, value, and temperature. All colors are mixed from the six primaries, plus white, for the oil and acrylic painter.

The first day, Donna will share her color mixing process, and she will do a demo (about 1 to1-1/2 hours) on the basics of color mixing. Participants will then do practice exercises for one hour on color and value. For these exercises, everyone will work using the 6-color system in the choice of their medium (oil, acrylic, or watercolor). That afternoon, everyone will attempt a painting, using the system learned.
The second day of the workshop, Donna will do brief demos if necessary, but she would like for everyone to paint as she provides individual assistance. Workshop participants may work from their own photographs or from their own still life.  A colored glass still life with flowers will be provided. Please do not use published or professional photographs.
